THESE NO BOUNCE, NO SLIP, POLARIZED, UV 400 shades still are offered at the low price of $25, with upgrade $35 glasses also promising silicone inserts, gradient lenses, and a bigger fit.
Goodr brand sunglasses were highlighted by Earned Runs in a previous post (and this is an update from the June 2018 post). With the season of gifting soon to be in full swing, you might wish to give them another look; the reasonable price makes them attractive presents for outdoorsy loved ones.
Two summers ago I bought a pair for myself and as a gift for a young runner friend’s birthday. The one big surprise encountered when they arrived is that the lens can come in colors other than the usual brown, gray, or green tint. The website now provides images that show the view that will be obtained through the sunglass lenses. However, before ordering you might wish to shop locally if possible, and try on a pair for this reason.
My local running specialty store now stocks them. There’s a store locator page on the company’s website that will help you shop Small Business Saturday next week at brick-and-mortar specialty stores which carry them.
Check out their website for HOLIDAY editions, also costing $25. There’s still time to treat the Turkey Trotter on your list, and yourself too, if dressing up for this annual event is your style, with a pair of the “Carl’s Idiot Cousin” shades. The “Merry Flocking Christmas” edition features green designs on a white background, one of which is a flamingo. This would seem to be perfect for a giftee who’s headed to warmer weather for the Christmas Holidays!
The Goodr glasses are light, stylish, and fun, and of course no-slip, and perfect for outdoor activity. That they come with polarized lenses at a low cost is a huge benefit.
RUN & MOVE HAPPY!
